Free Glasses for Residents of Calif., N.Y., M.N., S.D. and N.D.

Free eye glassesLive in California, New York, Minnesota, North Dakota or South Dakota? Need glasses? This is your chance to get them free as part of a CoastalContacts promotion on Facebook. The company is giving away 5,000 prescription pairs to California residents starting on Thursday, Feb. 10, 2011 at 12:01 a.m. PST -- but you need to get your coupon code for a free pair today before they run out.
There are currently also free glasses codes available for the following states:
  • New York (redeem on Feb. 17, 2011)
  • Minnesota (redeem on Feb. 15, 2011)
  • North Dakota (redeem on Feb. 15, 2011)
  • South Dakota (redeem on Feb. 15, 2011)
To get a free pair of glasses, go to CoastalContacts' Facebook page, click on the Free Glasses tab, and sign up to get your coupon code. It's a good idea to have your prescription, PD, and favorite pair picked out before Feb. 10 as in the past has slowed to a crawl because of demand. On Feb. 10, plug in your coupon code as your check out. You pay for shipping.

The idea is that by giving away so many free glasses -- the company has had a handful of similar freebies -- four-eyed folks will realize that buying glasses online is pretty nifty. I've shopped online for glasses before and found CoastalContacts to have one of the best sites for finding pairs that fit me.

Caveats: Valid only for Calif., N.Y., M.N., N.D. and S.D. residents. The free glasses include the frame and standard 1.5 index lenses, but extras like tinting, anti-glare coating, progressives, bifocals, and thicker lenses cost more. The coupon code you receive on Facebook is valid one time only. Some frames are not eligible for the freebie and will be marked as such. Limit one free pair of glasses per household. Previous free glasses recipients excluded.

Check back later today and throughout the week for more great freebies at WalletPop.
